I am looking for advice on High Blood pressure. I am 51 year old female , don't smoke, would probably be overweight by a stone and drinks occasionally. I have been on the above medication for 6 years regular check ups all fine avarage blood pressure around 145/80 mark give or take. Last was check in Nov when I had an operation all was fine. Went to GP today for something else was checked for blood pressure as I was there and it was 181/89 never been so high. I have been asked to check daily for a week and then go back and if still high will need to discuss changes to medication.
Questions can Vagifem (HRT) increase blood pressure as I have been taking since my operation . Can powder laxatives increase blood pressure high salt content. Can someones blood pressure rise so much so quickly when everything has been fine for years. It appears this has all started to come on after my operation.
Unfortautely my doctors just seem to dish out tablets very quickly and I do not wish to take more or different medication as I dont have any side effects on Candesartan. My GP says all new mediaction would not make any difference and it is just one of those things.
What do you all think and advise or information to go armed with next week would be good.
